Reflections on Supervision and Culture: What Difference Does Difference Make?
Acker, Sandra
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v48 n4 p413-420 2011
For this commentary, the author went back and read most of her own writings on graduate education. Having only just retired but still working with supervisees and doing research, she reflects on supervision and culture. She has four questions for authors and readers: (1) What is supervision?; (2) What are the implications of "sameness" and "difference" when applied to the supervisory dyad?; (3) To what extent do context and structure enter into supervision?; and (4) Are there issues of ethics or positionality to be found in the research methods used by authors?
